Duganne was a Boston author whose verse and prose won great acclaim in his day from contemporary critics such as William H. Burleigh: "Mr. Duganne's lyrical powers are characterized by a nervous energy, a generous sympathy with humanity, a wonderful command of language, and an ardent hatred of wrong and oppression in all their forms..." (Quoted by Allibone). A wonderful association copy.
